    I purchased this plant a couple of months back as a Bulbophyllum section Epicrianthes species. I am stumped with this plant. First off, I highly doubt it is section Epicrianthes. Second, I'm not even sure it's a Bulbophyllum at all. The plant itself looks like that of an Epicrianthes, but the flowers remind me more of Dendrobium bulbophylloides.

    The flower has the classic traits of a Dendrobium.

    I was thinking that as well, but the plant growth habit has me second guessing.

    Not like any Epicrianthes I've seen.

    My first thought was Cadetia (now Dendrobium) but I couldn't find anything that matched.
